COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tokyo Black is the second brand at YoHo. A robust porter, well balanced between the malt and the hops. The complex chocolate and roast flavours of dark specialty malts are combined with a floral and slightly spiciness from Perle hops.

jmgreenuk (4229) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Can at Taps, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin broken off-white head. The aroma is roasted malt, light grass spice hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth roasted malt, caramel, smoky, hop liqourice bitter palate and a dry smoky bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. I need to arrange that trip to Japan!

Holmen1 (2337) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
Den fjerde japanske boksøl denne fine maikvelden på Cardinal: flott skum, mørk som seg hør og bør. Velbalansert og akkurat passe tørr. Myk og lett. Fint røstet aroma med innslag av mørk kvalitetssjokolade. En typeriktig og fin porter.

Sigmund (5008) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2014
350 ml can, ABV 5%, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Black colour, large tan head. Nice roasty aroma, notes of coffee, dark unsweetened chocolate and woodwork. Dry roasty flavour, not "robust" but nicely balanced, notes of mild coffee and burnt breadcrumbs, hint of dark unsweetened chocolate. Moderate hops. Enjoyable.

Some caramelized and roasted malt on aroma. A little of that floral aroma they mention. Pours dark mahogany with decent head and lacing. Finishes medium bitter with a light dose of sweetness. Can at American Ice.
